As the helmsman of the wildly-successful Skulduggery Pleasant series, Derek Landy exchanged a life as a sometime writer of screenplays to, almost overnight, becoming one of the world’s biggest names in children’s fiction. Debuting in 2007, Skulduggery Pleasant took its readers on a wild ride to the undead, where the niece of a famous horror writer suddenly discovers that what he was writing wasn’t so fictional after all. With a tone that treated its young readers with respect and intelligence, Landy quickly established an appreciative legion of fans. In 2015, Landy briefly stepped away from his Skulduggery duties to pen a fresh trilogy for young adults, Demon Road, and as something of a Whovian, contributed a tale to the Doctor Who collection 12 Doctors 12 Stories.
The penultimate, rip-roaring instalment of Derek Landy’s bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series finds our charismatic anti-heroes faced with a dreadful decision which could mean the difference between survival and annihilation for humanity.
Bringing together all the adventures of the iconic skeleton detective Skulduggery Pleasant and his protégé Valkyrie, this stunningly illustrated compendium also features with a dark new story, plenty of surprises and an indispensable reference tool for navigating the entire wild cast of characters in the series.
